Focusing on the aerospace, defence and security, environment and agrifood, energy and power, manufacturing, transport systems and water sectors – as well as on leadership and management – our influence has helped to change the way society thinks, works and learns.
We have developed solutions to real world problems – for example in water and sanitation, aviation safety and humanitarian mine detection and clearance – that have improved the lives of millions of people around the world.
Together, we generate and transform knowledge, translating it for the benefit of society and for diverse organisations, from micro SMEs to the largest blue-chip multinationals, from national governments to NGOs and charities. We influence policy and bring ground-breaking new technologies and products to the market.
Candidates are encouraged to apply as early in the year to be eligible for a larger number of scholarships.
